Reason For Sunderland vs Burton Albion Betting Tips

When they trailed at half-time, it looked for all to see that Sunderland were on route to yet another disappointing afternoon at the Stadium of Light this season and, although they were able to claim a point with a goal in the latter stages, they know that much improvement is needed if they are to start climbing the table. This Tuesday they welcome a Burton Albion side who will be looking for a win of their own so they can keep in touch with the play-off picture.

Life as Sunderland manager has not got off to a good start for boss Phil Parkinson. Despite hammering Tranmere in one of the early matches of his reign, he has won just two of 10 matches in all competitions as Sunderland boss and, with the performance level also far from satisfactory, there are already plenty of people starting to call for his head. The Black Cats are strong at home though and have earned 69% of their points at on their own patch and have also scored 70% of their goals at the Stadium of Light. However, the flip side of that is that they have seen both teams score in 75% of home matches and a poor start on Tuesday will see the pressure of a disgruntled fan base on them pretty quickly.

Burton are not exactly the best placed team to take advantage of the woes of their hosts as they have failed to win in their last three away matches. However, they have earned 60% of their points on the road and have scored a massive 83% of their goals on their travels. That attacking output has it’s drawbacks though as they have also conceded 88% of their goals away from home.

We really fancy Burton to get a positive result here and the double chance option looks to be a good bet, but Sunderland are better on home soil and will surely be determined to earn a positive result to ease some of that pressure. Given the offensive and defensive records of both sides highlighted above, the both teams to score marker looks to be the safest option to get a decent return.

In terms of a correct score tip, the hosts have been renowned for 1-1 draws and their home record in League One has seen 34% of their matches at the Stadium of Light finish in a 1-1 scoreline since the start of last season, a trend which has continued this term as 38% of their home league matches have also finished that way. Burton have scored an average of 1.67 goals per game away but frequently concede so a 1-1 draw looks right to us.
